We have spoken to our service families about the challenges that they face and do our best to support them in school.

KIT Club

We run three lunchtime clubs every week called KIT Clubs. KIT stands for “Keeping in Touch”. There is one on a Tuesday lunchtime for service children in Key Stage 1, on a Thursday lunchtime for KS2 and from 2pm - 2.30pm on a Thursday afternoon for Foundation stage children. The clubs are always very well attended and the children love knowing that there are others in the same situation as them, especially when a parent is deployed.

Field Gun Club

At Widey Court we are very proud to run a Junior Field Gun Club.  Children in Years 4, 5 and 6 have the opportunity to take part in training for the Junior Field Gun Tournament that is held on Armed Forces Day on Plymouth Hoe every year.

This year Widey Court were amazing winning lots of trophies!   We can't wait to start training again in the new year in preparation for the tournament in 2023.

Services Pupil Premium

Since April 2013, provision has been made for pupils that were eligible for the Service Pupil Premium (SPP) since 2011, to continue to be eligible if their parents are no longer member of the Armed Forces, have died in Service or have divorced.

For families that have divorced, in practise this means that the divorce will have to have taken place since the introduction of the SPP in 2011 and the child must have been eligible for SPP in 2011.

The Service Pupil Premium rate per service child is currently set at £335 per year.
